Eastside Projects Second Gallery
14–16 October 2010, Opening 15 October, 6–8pm

Eastside Projects is pleased to present the first group exhibition in the second gallery programme. We have invited three young Birmingham-based artists working within a variety of forms, processes and adoptive positions in order to access performative spaces of production.

Gene-George Earle (b. 1988, South Africa) is employing a local sign holder, working within a specific decimal time code (in order to accumulate more time), to hold a specially designed sign outside Eastside Projects. Negotiating the territory of advertisement between disparate organisations (Subway and Eastside Projects), the work involves itself in the implications of applied models of working in the context of an informal economy.

Joanne Masding’s (b. 1985, UK) new projection work takes an element of the second gallery as its start and end point referring to the Japanese aesthetic Wabi-Sabi, and its core idea that things are always either devolving toward, or evolving from, nothingness.

Ultra High Temperature #1, initiated by Rebecca Bibby (b. 1986, UK) forms the first in an ongoing project which explores the realms of collaboration, performance, writing and publication as artistic vehicle of production, dispersion and progression. Ultra High Temperature #1 will be launched, printed, compiled and distributed as a live performance on the opening night. Rebecca Bibby will be producing an essay that re-fictions the futuristic projections of technosexuality in Metropolis (1927); artist/designers An Endless Supply will be designing this essay and the duo's Risograph stencil printer will take residence in the exhibition space throughout the show. As a crude avatar of Rebecca Bibby’s practice UH Thompson will, on this occasion, be embodied by Aikon-II, a mechanically programmed signature machine which will automatically sign each copy of the essay. The production process will be performed, sampled and packaged by London-based electronic n oise group Polly Fibre whose ‘flat-pack’ costumes will be on display throughout the exhibition.
